Yellow Boy From AMD

Took a walk along the levee in Hanover Twp.  At the end of the levee is a pumping station.   The creek is all rusty colored from the Acid Mine Drainage or AMD.

You can plainly see on the trees the AMD or Yellow Boy as it is often called.   When the creek overflows its banks, the Yellow Boy gets on the trunks of the trees.

The CP, formerly D and H and PRR line follows the creek.  Was hoping for a train, but nothing came along.
